Have YOU been hit by the wintry weather?

Snow storms on Saturday
Ryan sent this pic to Newsround

Weather experts warned us to get ready for some snow, and now for lots of people, it's here!

The white stuff has been falling all week - and LOADS of schools have been shut.

So we want to hear how YOU are coping in the big chill.

Did you wake up to a snowy scene this week, or perhaps none has fallen where you live?

And how is the weather affecting you, have you had any trouble travelling around, or perhaps your school has been closed?

Unfortunately this topic is now closed but there are Comments pages on other subjects on the main Chat index.
